's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
polls show mcauliffe several points ahead of the republican attorney general ken cuccinelli. so why bring the big guns in at this point? well, to rally the base and make sure democratic precincts show up on election day. joining me now is politico's alex isenstadt. an article in politico today really dives deep into this talking about the turnout of black voters. he doesn't need to match obama's performance but the dropoff cannot be too steep. we saw the president there hammering that point home repeatedly today. i want to play another portion of what the president had to say. take a look. >> the real reason you're here is that the single redeeming virtue of political extremism is people show up on the other side. so are you going to show up? this whole election is about which virginia shows up. >> about which virginia shows up. alex, explain when we talk about the youth vote, and as we dissect that apart, how important it is for young african-americans and college students to turn out on november 5th. >> right. well, it's a week away from the election. and for terry mcauliffe parti

"how have i been on the same page for three hours." >> this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> ted cruz may end up a big winner one day in iowa. but in new hampshire he's off the pace. look at this new poll on the new hampshire republican presidential primary. the big leaders right now are rand paul and chris christie. paul's at 17%, christie behind at 16%. next coming paul ryan and jeb bush. ted cruz is well behind with just 6%. we'll be right back.

, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the

was out there campaigning for ken cuccinelli. andterry mccaulive is saying why didn't he disassociate himself from him? why didn't he have him out here. virginia has a lot of government employees. so cruz is a real problem for cuccinelli in virginia. >> interesting. one week from tomorrow. late-breaking news today. a federal judge has ruled the abortion restrictions passed by the texas legislature in july are unconstitutional, and will not take effect as planned on tuesday. the judge said the regulations violated the rights of abortion doctors to do what they think is best for their patients, and would reasonably restrict a woman's access to abortion clinics. the proposed restrictions were among the toughest in the nation, and gained national attention after wendy davis' high-profile filibuster. governor rick perry vows to fight the ruling. connie, what's your reaction to this? what is the -- the political -- how damaging is this to the conservative movement? >> well, it's particularly interesting, one of the p provision attention struck down because it would have prohibited doctors w
, it's idea eelg with a very conservative ken cuccinelli in blue new jersey, electability with the conservative and pragmatic christie leading the ticket. one is doing better than the other. there's an interesting poll that came out in "washington post" that said 64% support mcauliffe and voting against cuccinelli. this idealogical extreme rhetoric from the ticket in virginia has been such a turf off to the moderate voters, they base beingally handed this on a matter. >> why you at home, even if you know nothing about virginia politics, krystal can weigh in. this is a battle for the republican party's soul right now. and there's a contingent that called romney republican in name only and feels they need to push more and more extreme. there's a swath of america looking for moderation in the republican party. i had a conversation with senator mccain where he said publicly several times, we need moderates. so those two races are described showing us that tension playing out in real time. it will be significant. >> seeing the clintons and potus and rand paul reminded me the na
in a very blue state and there are lessons to be learned. alternately, if we look at virginia, ken cuccinelli is probably more likely going to lose. >> according to polls. >> right, according to polls. very conservative candidate. so i think a lot of people will be watching and seeing what lessons they can take away. >> bill, do you think ideology is an important part of the virginia race? >> sure, but i think he didn't run a good campaign. he was very much hurt by the governor, who was very popular. it's made it hard for the campaign to raise ethics issues which are certainly there to be raised. cuccinelli has closed some and is now running on obama care, probably should have done that earlier. he's been critical of it, he wants to limit the effect of it in virginia. terry mcauliffe embraced obama care. if this race closes down to five, four points, or possibly a tie or tiny victory tomorrow, that will show how potent obama care is. but i'm told by people, i talked to people close to the campaign, they do think the obama care thing is cutting in their favor. it may be a little too
, at chris christie and ken cuccinelli is that friction, the difference between the tea party versus the establishment. and i want to play for you what conservative leader ralph reed says he thinks the republican party needs to do moving forward. >> you've got to say what you're for and not just what you're against. >> amen. >> it's not enough to be against obama care, what's your plan. secondly, you have to win some candidates who are effective messengers who can win people who even don't always agree with you on every issue. >> so how does the republican party move forward from here? what will you be looking for? what will poll numbers tell us? >> what i like is the republican establishment and republican elites kind of looking at the republican party and saying what ought to happen. but the fact is the voters -- the primary voters, the base voters of the republican party are the drivers of this. and they're the ones who give us these candidates that are elected in general elections. chris christie probably can't be nominated in the republican party -- >> you're talking probably an
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is
and it's true that ken cuccinelli has suffered an extreme amount of bad luck. he was the first in the nation to sue over obamacare years ago and basically lost his voice box on until recently and he could've been out there talking about obamacare and basically saying, i told you so, look at all the glitches and problems and we should have done been more careful with something this massive this quickly. >> host: you can certainly check out senator rand paul with ken cuccinelli. at first, the reaction of the governor's race. >> i am candidate for governor, terry mcauliffe. >> 150,000 virginians can be furloughed. >> 3600 employees. >> is supposed to campaign with ted cruz. he is seen as an architect is what is happening in the house, and that can really upset a lot of people and voters. >> for governor, who can you trust to create jobs? one of virginia's most important business pac says that their pick is ken cuccinelli, "the washington post" reports that they have found ken cuccinelli precise and serious and detail oriented. while terry mcauliffe was uninformed. no details, all
